. joining me is juliet macur and betsy andreu. travis is telling scott on "60 minutes" that lance armstrong lied to oprah winfrey about his 2009-2010 attempt at the tour de france. armstrong said he used a little bit of epo previously. travis tygart says that is absolutely not true. also lance armstrong claimed he didn't offer usada a $250,000 donation amid lingering questions about whether he was doping or not. and that he didn't pressure teammates to dope their blood. travis says all of that is not true. that he did pressure teammates, that a lieutenant of his did offer a donation that he was doping 2009, 2010. and that he pressured teammates. what's your reaction to what travis tygart has said? >> well, i think that, remember, in the interview with oprah, lance said if he could go back to june when usada reached out to him, he said he would do anything to have that day back and accept his offer. so despite trying to bankrupt usada and destroy them, they've graciously given lance another opportunity to have that day back. and if lance is truly sorry, he is going to be truthful,

smacking. thank you that only makes you look worse. but the interesting thing that betsy andreu said, lance was the main impediment to cyclists ever organizing an union. cyclists tried to organize an union. he was the one who said have made it happen and he was the person who stopped it from happening. if you want to stop doping, then you have to make courses safer. that's why people dope. the courses were death marchs. lance armstrong stood against that while making sure he had the best dope so he could win seven tour de frances. it gets so disgusting that it's hard not to feel as angry as ms. andreu sounded in that clip. >> john: and it seems to cast some doubt on armstrong's claim that he's sorry. >> your come back was also a tipping point. do you regret coming back. >> i do. i wouldn't be sitting here if i hadn't come back. >> you would have gotten away with it? >> it's impossible to say. much better chances. but i didn't. >> john: dave, i have to imagine that considering the amount of slander lawsuits that are going to be coming at him and defamation of character lawsuit he must

will he talk about people like betsy andreu and her husband who he tried to crush because he dared to say he was doping. i really don't think oprah will get into that during the interview. >> betsy, i heard you laughing as well and i know you have similar doubts. my question is how detailed will oprah get in her questions. if you read the reports, the details are so damning and i'd be curious to hear any answers he has to any of the allegations. betsy, do you think this is going to be a cake walk for him? >> i presume it will be. and i base that on the interview that oprah did with marion jones where she did not know the sport well enough, she didn't know the doping that went in track and field in order to ask the tough questions and the follow-up questions. and as well in april of 2011, oprah welcomed and embraced lance on to her program when lance was under a federal criminal investigation and never asked him about it. she embraced him all the time. and if oprah did, he was on her show a number of times and if oprah did ask the question, i think she just took him at face value, desp

pathetic, betsy. i thought you were a better person than that. >> betsy andreu provided the voicemail to the "new york daily news" as evidence of the threats and intimidation she says they suffered. and then there's greg lemond, the only american to win the world's most grueling race before armstrong went on his string of seven straight wins. the relationship between the two men was anything but close, especially after lemond questioned armstrong's association with a controversial italian doctor named michaeli ferrari. frankie andreu said armstrong was clearly upset at lemond's comments and in an affidavit andreu said, "i recall lance saying words to the effect of who does greg think he is talking about ferrari? i'm going to take him down." and he did. armstrong had great influence with the bike sponsor trek, which dropped its support of the lemond brand, damaging lemond's bike business. armstrong also intimidated his critics and rivals during competition. in the 2004 tour de france armstrong comfortably held the race's overall lead but surprised everyone when he chased down felipo simio

career of lance armstrong. >>> now, to betsy andreu, his husband was lance armstrong's teammate and close friend. the couple was part of his intimate circle, until he says they turned on him. betsy, good morning. you said you were furious watching that interview. what was it you expected to hear? >> i want to give credit to lance because what he did, admitting that he was a fraud and a cheat, all those years, is a huge, big step. he took the first step. but he -- it all started with his hospital room, where he admitted using performance-enhancing drugs. and he wouldn't step up to the plate where it all happened. this is where it all started. i was really disappointed personally that he didn't admit to that. >> he admitted ruining the lives of many people who told the truth about his doping. but when he was asked point-blank, if you told the truth when you testified under oath, that lance had told his cancer doctors in that hospital room, that he used performance-enhancing drugs, he refused. he said, i'm going to lay down on that one. it sounds like he was saying, she didn't tell the

have already decided. >> i think we all owe cancer an apology. >> reporter: frankie andreu was once armstrong's friend and closest teammate. this morning, he's the first one speaking out. >> he's been lying for years. he's lied to presidents. he's lied to larry king. >> reporter: andreu and his wife, betsy, saw their reputations attacked by armstrong, when they refused to lie under oath. >> i got ripped apart from the livestrong supporters. >> reporter: armstrong's sudden leap of faith is loaded with risks. he's outlasted a statute of limitations for criminal perjury charges for lying under oath. but at least three major civil suits are in the works. meaning a small army of lawyers will be dissecting everything he says. sources tell abc news that if armstrong's interview matches what he's told people close to him, you can expect a confession that includes the argument that everyone does it, and not just in cycling, but the nfl and elsewhere. we will see tonight and we'll see what people think. >> i don't know. that didn't work with my parents. and it doesn't work with my kids. >> an

time coming. i think it's steph. >> reporter: frankie andreu was his best friend and teammate until he and his wife testified they heard him admit he took drugs. armstrong went on the attack, accusing frankie and betsy of lying. >> she said in her deposition she hates me. >> reporter: why would he say the same thing if you don't? >> probably to support his wife. >> reporter: after that, frankie went from friend to pariah almost overnight. >> i'd go to events and i didn't know who my friend was, who my foe was, who would shake my hand, who would spit at me in disgust. i got e-mails, traitor, rat, just ripped apart. it was also from the live strong supporters. >> reporter: they weren't alone. fellow teammates floyd landis and tyler hamilton and former tour winner greg lamond all spoke up and all were smeared as jealous liars trying to profit, cover their own troubles, or both. but landis wouldn't be denied, speaking with investigators, and eventually launching the investigation that brought armstrong down. he talked about it in a "nightline" exclusive in 2010. >> if i'm taking on lanc

strong reactions. >> it's a long time coming. >> suarez: frankie andreu was once close to armstrong, as a team captain of the u.s. postal service cycling team from 1998 to 2000. but andreu was ostracized after he and his fiancee-- now-wife-- betsy, testified in 2005 that armstrong acknowledged using performance-enhancing drugs. >> for my wife and i, we've been attacked and ripped apart by lance and all of his people and all his supporters, repeatedly, for a long time. i just wish they wouldn't have been so blind and opened up their eyes earlier to all the signs that indicated there was deception there, so that we wouldn't have had to suffer as much. and it's not only us, i mean he's ruined a lot of people's lives. >> suarez: regulators from the official bodies that police cycling are also speaking out. the head of the world anti- doping agency-- david howman-- has demanded armstrong make his confession under oath. he told the associated press, "he's got to follow a certain course. that is not talking to a talk show host." armstrong vehemently denied doping for more than a decade, in
